No groaning at all. We understand it all too well. And we understand that it does not work. The (recent) start of trickle-down was in the early 80's, and the difference in economic performance between the 1% and the 99% since then is inescapable.  The "moving our country forward" is clearly optional. Have you been totally blind to the jobs that have been offshore during the past twenty years??  That "the Government does not function as well as a business" is a common chant...
What's the "bleeding out" part? This is money that has never been here.
Maybe Apple could just buy IDC and close it down ? The price wouldn't be even at the level of "rounding error" for Apple.
Try not to think. But the answer is "most of them". Ever wonder why Home Depot was hacked months after Target ? Management incompetence is only partly to blame. Did you ever wonder what OS was running the devices targeted by Stuxnet? *slaps forehead*
You are right. It will be the year of the goat. The open question is which will be the goat: Tim or quinney
As I see it, Apple took a while to shake out the bugs. Doing that in the U.S. makes a lot of sense (known territory, close contact, same time zone, etc). Now is the time that international rollouts are starting.  I was not surprised to see UK high on the list. But the brain-dead bankers there may have done you a favour by pushing back on the basis that "Apple gets too much customer information". Maybe zombies are running banking in UK now ?? If this insanity remains in...
Being in Canada for a week skiing, I have tried to use Apple Pay at a couple of places.   So far with zero success ( and these are for cards I've used with AP in U.S.)   Even at a checkout that had PayPass/paywave. And that accepted a physical card waved at it.   Maybe Canadian Tire wants to slow down their checkout process ??
I guess you're new. Microsoft has a regular schedule for releasing patches, other than OMFG panic things. This was a Great Blessing for sysadmins the world over. Please Google "Patch Tuesday". 
You'll get a real one if your problem is live and interesting. But Mag suggests that he can do it to order. I agree - ain't gonna happen.
Maybe. But easier said than done. Some fixes have nasty dependencies that show up in testing. Other fix a problem but break other stuff. Ninety days is not an unreasonable target but it is an unreasonable deadline. Google is being really stupid here. Before long someone is sure to file suit saying that they were hacked because of a Google-announced vulnerability that was previously unexploited.
